JEE 2015 Problem(Open discussion)

Here is a problem of chemistry from JEE 2015 Paper 1


You can have a look at Q37

It talks about reduction of Ferric ions to ferrous by using Hydrogen peroxide

I Was not able to get the answer to the problem . hence i searched youtube and got a nice practical explanation


according to the practical done no choice is correct but unfortunately in official keys answer was Given as AB.

What are your views?

Based on what percentage of reagents were used in that video usually in paper rxn with conc H2SO4 means 100% of it but in lab even conc consists ard 50% diluted H2SO4 to prevent 3rd degree burn but its chemistry so can't say confidently. Aryan Goyat · 6 months, 4 weeks ago

Yes , maybe the answer key is wrong ! they did'nt consider the practical view point and relieved only on the theoretical view point , BUT , also i have seen in some books earlier giving the answer as AB , so nothing can be done now ,\[\] CONCLUSION : you should read more books !
